But this time North Western Railway has prepared a big plan to get rid of the problem of trains getting late due to fog. Now it is being implemented.

For this, the Railways has already made complete preparations. Anti fog device will be used to get rid of the fog problem. It will not let the visibility drop to zero even in dense fog.

Fog-prone railway sections have been identified
North Western Railway’s CPRO Captain Shashi Kiran said that fog-prone railway sections have been identified in the North Western Railway. Availability of Visibility Test Objects (VTOs) is being ensured at all fog affected stations. Visibility at stations is checked using visibility test objects. Along with this, fog safety devices are being provided to the loco pilots of all the train services running in dense fog.
It is easy to control the speed of the vehicle
The CPRO said that a total of 877 fog safety devices are available in the entire North Western Railway. In all these, GPS mapping of the haze/fog rail section has been done. The fog safety device is mounted on the engine. After the device is turned on, it keeps the loco pilot informed about the distance from the GPS system to all the signals located in that segment in advance. This makes it easy for the loco pilot to control the speed of his vehicle.
Rail track monitoring has been enhanced
The loco pilots are being re-painting and colored with bright sign boards to ensure proper visibility of signals and other indicators. Apart from this, monitoring of the track has been enhanced by increasing the frequency of patrolling in such sections. This time NWR has decided that trains will not be canceled due to fog. However, the results of this preparation will be revealed only when the trains pass through dense fog.
